Participants in the NexusIPE™ Leadership Academy’s Leadership Forums will learn about, from and with interprofessional colleagues and mentors to build upon their own experiences while applying new knowledge-based leadership skills for transformative change within their local Nexus of practice and education.
Because of its complexity, implementing IPE demands a unique set of knowledge, understanding, perspectives, and skills to design, deliver and evaluate well. Based upon our work with the Nexus vision, we believe that new leadership approaches are needed to:
- move beyond the current status quo;
- integrate with health and social service delivery systems; and
- achieve outcomes that matter.
Current approaches such as standardization, checklists, and consensus definitions have contributed to the success of the past 20 years, and will continue to have a role, but by themselves they will be inadequate to achieve the vision of the Quadruple Aim.
By participating in the NexusIPE™ Leadership Forum, participants will collectively:
- Examine what we are doing today (visions, goals, plans, and actions) by asking uncomfortable questions about our current beliefs, values, and approaches to interprofessional practice and education.
- Develop a deeper and more practical understanding of national, regional, and local drivers that shape design and delivery of current health and social services.
- Reframe our approach by intentionally designing programs and work to achieve the learning and health outcomes we desire in real-time.
- Learn how to design health professions and interprofessional education programs for pre-licensure students, advanced learners and practicing health teams (or across the continuum of learning from pre-licensure through continuing professional development of practicing teams) that achieve clinical and community-based practice, health, and learning outcomes at the same time.
- Expand approaches beyond “the one best way” to knowledge-based approaches based upon adapting to specific situations in real-time.
- Develop skills to make adjustments in real-time based upon developing awareness and making sense of our current situation by tracking real-time, practical data to drive learning and health outcomes that matter.
- Learn new strategies for knowledge-based leadership, using models and tools developed over a decade by the National Center in working with health professions educators and clinical and community-based practitioners across the U.S.
